The general approach has been to work with tape-friendly bands, and therefore we should be within their policy already. but then we make the extra step to consult with someone in the band to make sure we are within their policy. I would think this would work for bands that have living members.

I agree with the preservation focus-- this is an opportunity for the bands that are now gone achive longevity and potentially find new fans. who knows, they might get popular enough to get back together.

Check Jambay here for a nice example of a defunct band that was still able to give the go ahead. From our perspective, it doesn't need to be "lawyerly" permission- just whatever is appropriate to the situation. Word from say, the official archivist of The Authority may be easy for you to get, eh Kramer? ;) Have him send a message- to me or to etree@archive.org will be OK.
